Mission Statement

To promote awareness of the Chesapeake Bay’s heritage • Encourage preservation of the Bay’s resources • Support Chesapeake Bay education and clean-up efforts • Bring historic schooners to the Bay • Encourage schooner sailing and preservation.

Description

We work to fulfill our mission by sponsoring two races per year; a Virtual Race and an actual, 127 mile race from Baltimore to Norfolk VA. Both races raise funds for our goals. These races bring focus to the maritime traditions of schooners on the Chesapeake and brings attention to the environmental issues facing the Chesapeake. All net proceeds of the race are donated to support youth education and other efforts aimed at saving the bay. This is why the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race is proud to say that we are "Racing to Save the Bay!"
